Molly Rose Scribner
We came home with Molly yesterday. Her big brothers were thrilled to have her home and are eager to dote on her and tell her how pretty she is. They love to help burp her. Ryan likes to count her fingers and toes. Andrew is really happy to have Mommy home and takes lots of opportunities to tell me how glad he is I am at home and how much he loves me.
Chad and I had such a hard time choosing a name for our darling girl. We had narrowed the list down to 3 names that we absolutely loved, but as we were not having triplets, we could only use one name. Our nurse was a bit agitated that she couldn't finish her paperwork. (And as an organized control freak myself, I don't blame her). We decided to name her Molly and called up the nurse to tell her. Then 15 minutes later, Chad called her back and said we had changed our mind, her name was Samantha. Then 20 minutes after that, we made the final call to the birth certificate office and changed her name back to Molly. I don't think we are winning any "Favorite Patient" Awards with our nurse, Meredith.
I have been blessed with wonderful examples in my life. Chad and I have the most wonderful mothers in the world. Both are strong and noble women who work and serve with their whole hearts, minds, and strength. Both are women who put their family and the Lord first. Molly Rose is named in honor of them. Molly is a nickname for Mary, Chad's mother's name and Rose is my mother's name. We hope that our Molly will grow up to be the like the two women she is named after.
